Arrest warrants issued against Evaly CEO Rassel, 2 others in cheque fraud case
A Dhaka court has issued arrest warrants against Evaly chief executive officer Mohammad Rassel and two others in a bank cheque fraud case filed by a customer in Dhamrai.
Judge Kazi Ashrafuzzaman of Chief Judicial Magistrate Court issued the arrest warrants on Monday (May 16, 2022), reports our Savar correspondent quoting the plaintiff's lawyer Abdul Warez.
The other accused are Evaly's former chairman Shamima Nasrin and manager (admin) Md Hassan.
Abdul Warez said the plaintiff Ahad received two cheques of Tk 15 lakh and Tk 10 lakh signed by Russel. The cheques were presented to The Dutch Bangla Bank Ltd's Kalampur Branch, in Dhamrai upazila, for encashing. But the bank authorities returned the cheques saying the bank account was closed.
Legal notices were served to pay the money within 30 days but they did not respond. Later, the case was filed.
The complainant, Ahad, said, "I bought five motorcycles from Evaly and paid Tk 14 lakh. The motorcycles were supposed to be delivered within 45 days of the payment."
Later, Evaly gave the cheques of Tk 25 lakh saying that they had no motorcycles in their stock then, he added.
